The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Duggleby

The B1253 road sweeps down and into steep 's' bends with the small settlement of Duggleby scattered along it. The land surrounding it is mainly used for agriculture and as such there are farms and buildings all around. The Chapel house is now a private dwelling and old farm buildings have been renovated into living accommodation. Duggleby Wold provides spectacular views of the Wolds and across to Malton and Settrington in North Yorkshire.

Over a hundred years ago Duggleby Howe was excavated. This is a large Bronze Age burial mound and was found to contain fifty bodies as well as bronze implements and stone tools which were of excellent quality.

The Duggleby NoticeBoard

Received from :The Duggleby Advertiser

Subject : Excitement

Nothing exciting ever happens in Duggleby, there are only 6 or 7 private houses, the locals spend their days going on one or two walks (one is known as "gannin roun't town" and the other as "roun't rattpits".

The most excitement Duggleby people have is the postman delivering, although standing watching crops grow runs a very close second............

There really is little point having a noticeboard on the web for Duggleby......cos the average age of population must be 60+ and no-one has a computer..........there isn't even a noticeboard in the village.........anyway must go now and mend a wheel on me cart and feed hoss so I can go for a ride out on Sunday !!

Subject : Duggleby is Great

I think Duggleby is great. In respect to the comments made, I actually have to work, and dont just spend all day walking around rat pits. Also there is a wide age range in duggleby, and a noticboard on the website would be appropiate.

What more could a person ask for in such a peacful and calm village




Received from :The Duggleby Advertiser

Subject : Apologies

My first message was written purely tongue in cheek but nevertheless it appears to have hit a raw nerve with a resident, so here I am posting sincere apologies. Anyway I must have been wrong cos I heard today (via smoke signal of course!) of one life long resident who left to live in Australia but couldn't stay away and has returned to live in Duggleby..........what more can one say....left me speechless.....Bondai Beach or Duggleby......no contest....
